Sweet Soubrette

As those who have been with the various sites since the last decade will recall – I do quite like a ukulele and the lead instrument for Sweet Soubrette is just such.

Normally given a fragile architecture in which to work, which perhaps explains why the instrument is viewed as such a dainty little thing and far too often overlooked. In the case of this octet, sometimes decet – wind instruments, bowed strings, electric bass guitar, synthetic keys and percussion – alongside of course vocal – are unable to camouflage the distinctive tautness of the strings of an instrument which needs more credit for its versatility as in the right hands – to give credit Ellia Bisker does know how to play – rather than being a fragile whimsy it is a centre-point of focus more than capable of dealing with interlopers.

More Wind is available on bandcamp.
